Cyrus impressed the judges and the audience during his Monday’s performance even making his mentor Chris Isaak cry. Since the start of the competition Cyrus has already captured the audience. They even associated his contagious performances in a virus thus the birth of the monicker Cyrus Virus.
One of the X-Factor judges, Dannii Minogue who throughout the show kept on saying she’s been caught by the Cyrus Virus, took to Twitter to say her congratulations.
Congratulations to our winner for 2015 🎊🎉🎊🎉✨ @thexfactor_au
